1986 Ford Mustang Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 35 reviews
Although Ford did not do much with the 1986 Ford Mustang, it remains a popular car today, as it is relatively easy to tune (anybody have any more details they can provide on this?) Otherwise, the car remained pretty much the same as the 1985 model year.
The standard engine was an oil-leaking 2.3-liter I4 rated at 88 horsepower, and options included a 3.8-liter V6 (120 horsepower). An updated 5.0-liter HO V8 was now the standard in GTs, formerly rated at 210 horsepower. 1986 was the first year for fuel injection, as the 8.8 rear and TRUE dual exhaust. Horsepower went up to 225, also torque went up to 300 ft.lb., making the car quicker.
The SVO trim had a 2.3-liter I4 turbocharged engine, capable of 200 horsepower.
As for the Saleen, Ford began moving some of the after-factory improvements into its standard car, including a new spoiler package, nicer bucket seats, and a leather steering wheel. However, dealers were still required to buy cars specific for conversion which were limited to an LX hatchback or convertible.
